Jazz 88.3 is proud to support the 27th Annual San Diego Music Awards, happening Monday, March 19th at the House of Blues, located in the heart of Downtown! (Click here to see a list of this year's nominees). Proceeds from the San Diego Music Awards help to purchase guitars for San Diego County schools, via a partnership between the San Diego Music Foundation and El Cajon's Taylor Guitars. Over the life of the program, 2,978 guitars have been placed into 85 schools from San Onofre to San Ysidro and over 55,000 K-12 students have been impacted by the program.

Camarada's 2018 season is in full-swing! Up Next: "Calypso Heat" happening Sunday, April 15th at the Mingei (6:30PM). Camarada takes a trip to the Caribbean to explore the music that pulses through the islands. Leonard sings “Jamaica Farewell” and the humorous “Monkey Song”, both made famous by Harry Belafonte. Peter’s parents had those records and their influence can be felt on his original songs “Musica Del Mar” and “Cali Calypso”. The pace slows down and they do a sensitive reading of “Oh Shenandoah” which is a song about a river and water, kind of far from the islands but perhaps related in some metaphysical way. This is bound to be one spectacular show! For further details, or to purchase tickets, click here!
